Sounds like a short in the switch. Did you leave the windows down and has the inside of the car gotten wet lately?

Yes, I left the window down and it rained. Once it dries out will it work again the right way?

Yes, it should. Try a hair dryer for a few minutes.

Andrea, I would suspect that your issue has to do with the BCM or Body Control Module. It is what controls the power to your door locks. Try Ebay or your local salvage yard for a used one. If you have anti-theft, you will have to get your used BCM reprogrammed at the dealer. If you just have a basic model, it should work fine. You can always take it to the dealer with your current BCM and they can try to re-flash it. That may solve your lock issues without purchasing another one.
